Sunbumps part 2 - the sequel !

Richard Thomson
 

3 months ago young Mike Dwyer wrote to me about refinishing when I first
started work on FN, and the phenomenon of the expanding peeling process, and
of course he was right, to some extent at least. The sunbumps remind me of
what mum said all those years ago , " leave those spots alone, the more you
play with them, the worse they will become" .
The tail cone is nearly restored, using West System and lightweight filler,
which has worked quite well provided you use the correct process.
Unfortunately the weather over here has been cool and wet for the best part
of the last 4 weeks, so although it now just needs a final splodge of filler
to level up in places, and repainting, it will be a few weeks before that
happens ( I have a metal workshop which condensates if you try to heat it
when it rains ) .
I have tested the paint surface and it is a two pack polyurethane, so I will
refinish with the same, better UV protection so the book says. I have been
trying a 2 pack polyester filler primer which first tests seem ok. It bonds
well to the original polyester and the new epoxy fillers.
The canopy is nearly all repaired as well, ready for paint, but it does need
the rubber seal replacing, which I am not sure if it is a standard P seal
used on all the Q's ? Anyone any info please ?

Tri Q rudder arm

Richard Thomson
 

I am currently looking for a replacement rudder pivot post and arm welded
assembly for the Tri Q, which I think is part number Q2CSA10, ( that may be
the old Q2 short moment version number ) If anyone has a spare preferably
the wider one please advise, or where I can get one.

Santa's Little helpers

Richard Thomson
 

Hi all
This year Santa decided that I could do with an uprated nose leg to replace
the 20 year old one on my Tri Q, and it arrived yesterday. Many thanks to
Scott Swing and co at Velocity, and Dave R for the tip. It is beautiful. I
can't wait to get it on.

Its Christmas!

Jim Patillo
 

Peter,

Thanks for the Queensland Christmas present. My wife is from Bermuda so
we both appreciated it very much, as BAZ lives there as well. Is he
just as noisy in Queensland, especially late at night? It was a hoot!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Safe Flying in 2007.

Regards,
Jim P.

I just happen to have a new one that I'll probably never get around to
using.

It's a bit shop-worn and a little weathered, but otherwise in new condition.


It's a 3" extension that measures 5-3/8" in diameter.

I'll take $200 (plus shipping) for it and can accept PayPal or a credit

Re: metal adhesive

Phil Lankford
 

With that much contact area and a likelihood of the two parts being flexed
about, any good contact cement would probably do. But try Eastwood catalog #
31087 No Weld Panel Adhesive Replacement.

"Alma mater is Latin for "nourishing mother". It was used in ancient
Rome as a title for the mother goddess, and in Medieval Christianity for
the Virgin Mary.

It is now a term mainly used in academia — as a sobriquet for the
university or college a person has attended. This usage is taken from
the full name ("Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna") of the
oldest European university, the University of Bologna." (Wikipedia)

Now, if she just builds and flies a Quickie, she'll really have it made!

Re: First flight

chris rayner <chris-rayner@...>
 

Thanks guys - it's a good feeling. Looking forward to my turn. Not many details about the flight because there was no "supporting engineer" to make notes. I expect to be aboard next time for the measurements. The oil reached about 225F, but it was after several taxi runs and also a long continuous climb. Plus the prop is too fine so it was turning about 2600 at 160mph or so - it's a nominal 60x66. We''ll probably leave it for the early flights as it was climbing at around 1500 fpm. I have another prop (60x70) which I'll probably fit after testing - should improve top end and stop over-revving. First things first though - I need to add a bit more +ve camber and a bit more toe out to try to improve tracking - not bad, but could be better. Also cowls off and check things.
With the storms we have at the moment, next flight might be a while....

Congradulations Chris. Happy to see it made the first one. Were all the

Joan Higginbotham, a 1987 SIU electrical engineering grad, is currently
